About the WMI Provider

Microsoft Identity Lifecycle Manager 2007, Feature Pack 1 includes a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider that performs administrative tasks with scripts that are written in scripting languages such as Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript). By using the WMI Provider in a script, you can schedule administrative tasks to run at convenient times through the Scheduled Tasks feature of Windows Server 2003.

You can perform the following tasks with the WMI Provider:

  • Start a management agent run or stop an existing management agent run.
  • Get the results of a management agent run.
  • Get statistical information about the connector space or metaverse.
  • Set or change passwords.
  • Get information about ILM 2007 FP1.
  • Search for a connector space object with a specified domain and account name in a global address list, a Windows NT 4.0 domain, or in Active Directory.
  • Search for a connector space object with a specified domain and user principal name in a global address list, a Windows NT 4.0 domain, or in Active Directory.

The WMI Provider is automatically installed during ILM 2007 FP1 installation.

The WMI Provider has the following classes.
